I have a very similar Sector 9 deck and trucks. Lovely ride. Not motorised it yet though. Interested to see how you get on. How are you going to mount to the trucks as the mount you have is for calibers? I think I found I was going to have to change the trucks from drop through to regular to get the clearance for my mounts.

how are your sidewinder trucks handling with the electric motor?

If I’m not mistaken, you probably paid a lot more for the remote controller.

Yeah, he paid…

what I’m planning on doing is grinding the trucks a little bit and use a file to get the shape kinda

I know :frowning: but I want a good controller that won’t loose connection and stuff

I don’t know yet the motor mount and motor haven’t come in yet but ill let you know once I get it all setup

Following…I build my board with 50 degree rkp trucks and miss the carvyness of my generation 2 evolve board…ordered some evolve gt trux to see if I can get that feel…coming tomorrow…:wink:

Nice man carving is the best on a long board

Let me know if those DIY mounts don’t work out on your sidewinders. My ripba mounts fit with about 2 seconds of filing.
